Synopsis

Album Description
Verdi wrote the Requiem in 1874 to mark the first anniversary of the death of Alessandro Manzoni, the grand old man of Italian literature. In view of the dramatic nature, colorfulness, and "Italianism" of the work, it was soon dubbed a "spiritual opera." Even those who were not opera fans spoke ambiguously of "Verdi's best opera." The Youth Orchestra of the Americas, a world-class multicultural orchestra that brings together young musicians from North & South America, is conducted here by Plácido Domingo. The vocal parts are performed by prominent soloists together with the EuropaChorAkademie under the leadership of Joshard Daus. DVD is playable in all regions; approx. run time 39 minutes.
